On 23 December 1944, at Comrie Camp in Scotland, Wolfgang Rosterg was beaten to death by his comrades for the crime of disloyalty to the Fuhrer. In January, a new interpreter arrived at Comrie - Herbert Sulzbach, a Jewish refugee with an Iron Cross.The last battle of the war, the battle for hearts and minds, was about to begin.

The Half Life of French Socialism
When France's socialists came to power in 1981 they promised radical change at every level of national life. At mid- term, economic reality and President Mitterand'e U-turn have dampened their reforming ardour, but how far have they managed to accomplish a deeper transformation? Have the old political animosities weakened in industry and local government? Is decentralisation only t pious aspiration? Has Mitterand done better than Giscard d'Estang in his search for the centre ground of French Politics? Presenter John Ardago Producer DAVID MORTON
